  • Wear a mask at all lawn bowls activities organized by the HKLBA.
  • Observe individual club’s rules, including the entrance requirements.
  • Following the government’s social distance rules.  While Fours game is allowed under the LCSD classification of team sports, players need to refrain from gathering in a group of more than four.  The Third is advised to stay on the bank when the lead is bowling, and vice versa.
